I need a good ATV. What about Polaris?

We are planning to buy an ATV for doing work on rural property. Anyone have experience with them and what is a good brand? Mary

We have the Honda 4x4 and find it to be a very good vehicle. We looked at Polaris but decided the Honda was the better made and more durable. We have had it for two years and have had no trouble at all with it. We use it on our farm for a mulitiude of jobs from pulling a wagon, using a weed sprayer and the kids take it out on trail rides.

My Polaris kicks b*tt! It is a 4x4 and I've cleared over 20 acres of ROUGH terrain pulling nothing but a 42" gas powered bush hog. It is the top of the line unit.

We have a pair of Hondas......have had them for 5 yrs. of intense use on rural property. They are incredible machines....have only had them serviced once. (And that was just for tune-ups and new tires) I highly recommend Honda

I travel to Northern Ontario Reserves all the way to Hudson's Bay. They depend on these machines up there which come in by ice road or barge and of all the makes Honda has by far the best reputation for reliability.No mechanic shops or spare parts up there and they have to fix all their own machines. Bye the way any repoerts of embedded chip problems in these things?
